Ravi Teja has turned a co-producer for his untitled period thriller with debutant director Sarath Mandava, who began the production works today in Hyderabad. The ‘Krack’ actor is betting big on the movie because he was swept off his feet by Mandava’s narration.
Producer Sudhakar Cherukuri is said to be happy to have got the ‘Khiladi’ actor on board as a co-producer. Divyansha Koushik of ‘Majili’ fame is one of the heroines.
Ravi Teja has begun shooting for the period film, which has him in the role of a Magistrate. The formula of a sincere government officer locking horns with goonda elements is a tested element in commercial cinema. But the film might go beyond this line.
Also featuring Nasser, VK Naresh, Pavitra Lokesh, Rahul Ramakrishna and others, the film’s release date is yet to be locked.
